Safeguarding Priorities and Themes

During summer 2020 the Safeguarding Children Partnership and the Safeguarding Adults Board conducted surveys to help set the priorities for the period September 2020 to March 2022. In September 2020 the following priorities were agreed:

Children:

  • Complex safeguarding themes (including exploitation and SYV)
  • Mental Health
  • Childhood Trauma/ACEs

Adults:

  • Homelessness
  • Managing complexity (including self-neglect)

Joint:

  • Domestic abuse

The information on the pages below will be updated to reflect these priorities as focused work begins.
